Spencer, Isabelle
Shane,

Is the name for a female Isabelle, or a male Spencer?

I created a memorial for a female Isabelle Spencer in the last month or so.

If mine is wrong I will delete it and add the photo to your Spencer. Please clarify.

RE: James A Riley
Sorry. He had no marker. Two of us have walked the entire cemetery and photographed the entire cemetery and found no marker. The book of markers printed in 1965 by the sexton states does not list him therefore he had no marker in 1965. i am aware that a marker was ordered for him but no kne knows what happened to it. Nothing else can be done. The internment does list him so we know that was a grave purchased in 1949. He is buried with his parents also no marker for them

Yes. All the information of this gentleman is of his family(?). I'm sad the military did not mark his grave.

Wayne Anderson
I want to share...Sgt. Wayne W. Anderson was interred on 12/4/48. He is in section D/178/3- no marker. Also, if this is the correct one, he has a Jean Anderson next to him in D/178/2- interred in on 2/24/67 & she is next to Thomas J. Anderson- D/178/1- interred in on 1/3/68.

Please let me know if you create memorials for his family.

I cannot understand why he did not recieve a marker.

Take care! Tina

RE: Inverness Cemetery
Hi ShaneO,
As you know by now, I did in fact locate the grave you requested and posted it. Because of the nature of the request, several people got involved with this and there were several foot searches by several different persons. I've updated the Inverness City's records and also have an additional veteran's grave site photo that lies adjacent to Mr. Cato. If you would like to create a memorial for him, please let me know. Sorry to have taken so long to track down this marker, sometimes these things take time and effort. From all those involved, we hope this helps your research/catalog/family records and on behalf of the people involved, we thank young Mr. Cato for his sacrifice... we hope he is at least resting in peace in paradise.

Hi Shane, I must say that I am so very impressed with the fantastic effort you are putting in! I try to do what little I can to clean up around a veteran's grave and their marker, take and post as many photos here as I can. I came across SSgt Roberson's marker yesterday and was humbled to be in the presence of a gentleman that went in on the first wave of D-Day and gave all he had. I posted the picture I took to your memorial. Thank you so very much for what you are doing!

Best regards,

Earl O. Hall
Hello,
Earl Orine Hall (Memorial # 91300887) is my father's uncle. His tombstone has the wrong dates. His birthday was June 16, 1918 (source WPA birth index and enlistment papers) and his death date was Aug 26, 1944. I'm not sure why the BIRLS death file lists the death date which is found on his tombstone, but the combat log for his battalion describes the event of his death in the entry for Aug 26, 1944.

Thank you for creating this memorial.
Wendy

RE: Gheardi and parris
Shane,
Alfonse Gherardi is not in Hibbing's records as being buried there. Even just putting in the surname he is not listed. And I looked under the spelling you have above. There are other Gherardis but none with a death date even close to '44.

I'd say Murray. This came from another site that has the casualty listings. The casualty lists are all of a sudden not coming up.
Also when I set the search for Robert J Murphy at Ancestry, I get no files for this person.

I've been in Mexico for 3 weeks and will be returning tomorrow until mid-August (was home for a funeral). Please hold off on other transfers until I get back - my email is going to be bad enough as it is. Not sure exactly what you want me to do with them, but I can tell you I won't be working on them while I'm away. Will contact you as soon as I return stateside.

Knettel
Hi Shane this was part of the 392nd web site.

Knettel rarely talked about the incident, but did tell his son Michael that the air was colder than normal that day and they were flying at a higher altitude than usual. He heard a tremendous noise and then he and Brzostowski just fell from the plane. As his chute deployed, the plane exploded and debris showered down. His parachute was damaged, causing him to descend too fast. He was severely injured; a metal plate had to be placed in his head and a rod in his leg. These injuries pained him until his death at age 47.
